A transcript that is time-aligned and could be provided through a
<track> element with @kind would currently be regarded as @metadata,
which would be sufficient.

However, the bug that created that issue is about a non-time-aligned
transcript - something that somebody can read without having to watch
the video at the same time. It's a textual replacement for the video
that explains everything that the video contains. Currently we can
only link that to the video via a separate link on the page. It would
be nice if it was raised as soon as you tab onto the video when using
a screenreader.

Cheers,
Silvia.
